## Infant Health and Development Program Data

### Description

Infant Health and Development Program (IHDP) is a randomized experiment from 1985 to 1988 which studied the effect of home visits on cognitive test scores for infants.

### Usage

```
ihdp
```

### Format

- treatment
Given treatment.

- y_factual
Observed outcome.

- y_cfactual
Potential outcome given the opposite treatment.

- mu0
Control conditional means.

- mu1
Treated conditional means.

- X1 ~ X6
Confounders with continuous values.

- X7 ~ X25
Confounders with binary values.

### Details

This dataset was first used by Hill (2011), then used by other researchers (Shalit et al. 2017, Louizos et al. 2017).

### Source

Our version of dataset is the dataset used by Louizos et al. (2017). This is the first realization of 10 generated datasets and you can find other realizations from https://github.com/AMLab-Amsterdam/CEVAE.
